just got a bit of aggravating news this morning. i've not got the title work on my el camino done yet because i've been busy with everything else. managed to get ahold of a couple notaries in town to inquire about it. apparently, in virginia, all you need is a bill of sale and the title from the previous owner. this is not the case in pennsylvania. here, they need the title to be signed by buyer and seller and stamped by a notary. it's acceptible if it's done from another state, but it needs done. so, i need to get ahold of the previous owner and see if he's still in contact with the original owner, since they never got the title transferred to begin with. this is quite the headache and i really hope i can get it resolved as quickly as possible.
